Found the problem...

When running pkgadd in the global zone (see zones(5)), a package that 
contains a request script (see pkgask(1M)) is added only to the global 
zone. The package is not propagated to any current or 
yet-to-be-installed non-global zone. This behavior mimics the effect of 
the -G option, described below.
